Latest Bluewood Project

VIQU Office Design Southampton

Our project for VIQU was to convert a 1400square foot basic retail shell for their Southampton based busy Team of Recruiters and transform it into a contemporary and industrial space.

A variety of different finishes and heights of furniture were used to create textures and pockets of space which could be used for multi-purpose functions.

A meeting room was created with a brick effect wall and TV, a concrete plinth was built with raised desking running adjacent to the windows to maximise the light and for the active members of the Team who cycle and run to the office, a shower room was created.

A blend of carpet tiles and hard flooring was used to create different zones within the open plan space and a fully fitted kitchen was installed. In addition, we installed new plumbing, w/c and lighting throughout.

We really enjoyed working with ViQU on this project who were delighted with the end result:
"Thanks to Bluewood Office Interiors for their support with the refurbishment of our new Southampton office! A very professional team that worked quickly to achieve a great finish throughout our new workspace. Keep up the good work!"

Bluewood provided a fully managed and comprehensive service. On time and on budget we created an amazing workspace which included an open plan office area, a stylish suite of board and meeting rooms with "Crital" style glazing and a stunning kitchen / break out area.

We designed and installed contemporary furniture and IT infrastructure throughout the space.

NMT Shipping, Town Quay - Southampton
Office Refurbishment

This was a 4,300 sq ft CAT B fit-out project for International Shipping Company NMT who were relocating their Southampton HQ to Town Quay. The first-floor office space is in a prime location situated on the waterfront and the Team at NMT wanted to maximise the views across Southampton’s docks as well as create a contemporary finish.

We used a lot of glass to achieve this! Cellular areas with in the space were built using glass to ensure a bright, open plan look and feel and capture the views across the water.

A bespoke feature was designed and built to divide Reception from the office space by using slatted timber hung with wire rigging which was wall mounted to create the partition. Other works included A/C alterations, installation of data and floor box power, new flooring and installation of glass meeting rooms and offices.

Office Refurbishment

This project for the Nortek Group who design, develop and produce scientific instruments which measure water in motion was a 968 sq ft office fit-out. With an HQ in Norway, the Southampton contingent relocated to Ocean Village. The project was to design and install, amongst other works, 3 cubular, covid-secure micro-offices. For a company who have previously relied heavily on travel to operate and connect the restrictions have resulted in finding alternative solutions to interact and like with companies everywhere, a virtual approach to communication and function. These cubular offices will also provide privacy and quiet space for the Team to communicate with other colleagues via virtual platforms and ensure employees remain effective in their roles and allow the business to operate as effectively as before.

In addition to the cellular offices, we created a Directors Office, Boardroom and break-out facility. Lighting was re-adjusted to accommodate the new lay-out and additional electrical supplies installed.

Claire Logic - Abingdon
Office refit

Bluewood completed a 14-week phased project to refurbish and refit the offices of Claire Logic in Abingdon which extended to approx. 3,000 sq ft. The brief was to create a new contemporary working environment whilst enabling them to continue operating in the property. This was achieved by splitting the job in to two phases. Phase 1 involved moving some staff and meeting facilities into the ground floor of the property to enable us to refurbish the first floor as a high-density desking area with a small 1-2-1 meeting room and kitchenette. Claire Logic then re-located to the first floor so we could build a new and super smart break out area and board room on the ground floor. Working in an environment where office work is ongoing always presents a challenge however the project was successful, and our client was pleased with the management of the project as well as the end result. The project involved new W/C's, flooring, suspended ceiling, a break out area, new lighting and electrical installation, air-conditioning and decorating.
